Message from the President and CEO

Embracing a corporate philosophy of "Trust beyond the era," Tokyo Tatemono Group strives to continue to be the leading choice for customers.

I would like to express our sincere gratitude for your continued support of the Tokyo Tatemono Group. Established in 1896 by Zenjiro Yasuda, the founder of the former Yasuda conglomerate, the Group celebrated its 120th anniversary in October 2016. Since its founding, the Tokyo Tatemono Group has upheld Zenjiro Yasuda's principle of "customer first" and embraced the progressive spirit of acting ahead of the times as the foundation of its corporate activities, and has since cultivated a real estate development business and various other endeavors.

In February 2015, the Tokyo Tatemono Group formulated a five-year medium-term business plan ending in fiscal 2019. The plan upholds the Group statement: "continue to be the leading choice, providing amazing value through innovative group synergy," demonstrating our commitment to being a corporate group that continues to be the leading choice for customers by reinforcing group synergy and further enhancing customer services.

Japan is facing various changes, such as intensifying competition between international cities, a progressing aging society with a dwindling birthrate, population decline in the medium to long term, and diversifying values. This makes the roles and responsibilities we are to fulfill more important than ever. We hope to meet the expectations of all stakeholders by embodying our corporate philosophy of "Trust beyond the era" through all Group employees, and by contributing to the development of a prosperous society.

We ask for your continued support and guidance.

President and Chief Executive Officer

Hitoshi Nomura
